Alveda King: ‘President Trump Is Not Trying to Suppress the Vote’

‘He’s even encouraged, you know, people to be poll watchers and poll workers and that kind of thing’

EXCERPT:

KING: “Also, implying without calling any names, he was very clever not to call any names, saying that there was an effort to undermine the voting process. You know, actually President Trump is saying, 'People, please pay attention, we do want you to vote. Use your absentee ballots, go to the polls.' He has even encouraged, you know, people to be poll watchers and poll workers and that kind of things. President Trump is not trying to suppress the vote. As a matter of fact, you can see in my community, I’m telling everybody, 'Make sure you vote, register to vote. Pastors and leaders, encourage your people to vote.' We do want people to vote safely and we need the voting process to be fair. And so to politicize the funeral of a peaceful warrior, I mean, I guess they grabbed at an opportunity to be political.”
